I like how it didn't really advocate one way or the other, just took a look at whether or not the ACOG conclusions were flawed.

Ditto! I was fully expecting them to start bashing home birth at some point, just because more times than not these articles do.

I like it. It actually seemed to champion planned, low-risk home births with a trained and certified midwife. A big high five to TIME for a balanced and well written article!

I only got to read the first page for some reason it sort of froze up or something, but glad it wasn't a bash fest!

Not bad
Here is a canadian article (from our national newspaper) talking about the meta analysis mentioned in the TIME article: U.S. analysis on home birth risks seen as deeply flawed - The Globe and Mail
